Crystal Symphony Cruise Review by JC Norton
- Sail Date: October 2018
- Destination: Canada & New England
- Cabin Type: Deluxe Stateroom with Verandah
Service on Crystal is perfect in every way -- attentive and engaging staff who seem happy to be where they are. Food is good to great in all venues and the variety in the main dining room is excellent. The included wines and spirits were fine with no need to upgrade. Cocktails are beautifully made and served.
The ports were enjoyable, mostly small cities full of friendly Canadians. We did not do excursions generally, preferring to explore on our own, which, in these places was easy to do.
At embarkation there was a bit of a snag as no one seemed to know what cabin we were in. It got sorted out, but seemed surprising on a luxury cruise line that people were having to make calls to figure out where to put these two passengers. Aside from that trivial matter, it was a great experience and we'll be back, particularly if this 'jazz days and cabaret nights' thing is an institution. Hope it is.
